Flu Shot… Why It Pays To Be Informed!

We hear it every year, “get your flu shot” or “don’t forget to get your flu shot”, but does the flu shot actually prevent you from getting the flu?

Research has shown flu shots have minimal, if any, benefits in actually preventing you from catching the flu!

Do I get it…? No!

Would I allow my immediate family members to get it…? No!

Plenty of people think it’s a perfectly healthy substance to drink; advertisements would have us believe so and encourage us to consume it all the time.

But, unfortunately, it may not be as healthy as we are lead to believe.

I talk a lot about dairy and I am well aware that it’s a very touchy subject; being critical of dairy is like criticising motherhood, it upsets a lot of people.

My intention is not to upset, it’s just to inform.

Fluoride & Chlorine are Dangerous to Health.. FULL STOP!

There are supposedly “SAFE” levels of Fluoride & Chlorine in our water… I strongly disagree….

There is No Room in Good Health for Fluoride & Chlorine (Halides)

The WA Dept. of Health states “the optimum fluoride level in public drinking water supplies is 1 milligram per litre.   They say, this is a safe and effective way of helping to protect teeth against dental decay.  And, that it is not necessary or desirable to remove the fluoride from the water.

DO NOT Ignore The Seriousness of Type 2 Diabetes

What is Type 2 Diabetes?

When carbohydrates are eaten the body breaks them down into simple sugars that enter the bloodstream; as a result the pancreas releases insulin.

Insulin is a hormone that allows the body’s cells to absorb and use sugars from the blood for producing energy.

When the body does not make any or enough insulin, or utilise the insulin correctly, blood sugar (glucose) levels rise.   High blood glucose or Hyperglycemia is a symptom that characterizes diabetes.

Insufficient insulin production and / or resistance to the actions of insulin can cause diabetes to develop.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Continue reading DO NOT Ignore The Seriousness of Type 2 Diabetes
